I’ve been doing some illustrations with my friend Kerry to go along with her excellent writing styles. Along with my other regular illo-bro @joe_hunter, a few other artists have also been hopping in on the One p.m. Wednesday blog. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you really should.
Guys, if you catch me complaining about how hard it is to make comics ever again, whack me upside the head with this photo. This 12-year-old student broke her ring and pinky fingers on her drawing hand this afternoon at school. Her doctor set the bones and told her to take it easy, but she DEMANDED to come to comics class.
I tried to give her a different assignment that wouldn’t require the use of her drawing hand, but again she demanded to do the assignment the others were working on.
“Doesn’t it hurt?” I asked.
“Yeah, all the time,” she replied. “But I have comics to make.”
I never, ever get to complain about how hard it is to make comics again.

Let’s get schooled by the raddest 12-year-old in all the land.
This is me taking a joke a little further than necessary.
I was sassin’ my pal @edcho7000 and turned his Duke of Potatoes comment around to Duchess of Potatoes. I wish with all my heart that I could claim to be clever enough to have known that there is a dish called Duchess Potatoes. I really do. Unfortunately, I am not as clever as that.
